This week’s guests, for Bold Moves Podcast Episode 115 Drusilla Cowan has done some serious, bold moves. Drusilla or Dru has been making bold moves ever since she got out of college, and probably even before that. Her first important bold move was moving across the country from Louisiana to California with no job and only $700. Then Dru left the biotech industry, again with little savings, to start her own business, one that supports survivors of sexual assault. Despite the lack of financial security, she is the happiest she’s ever been, and Survivor Alliance has been making a huge difference for people. She has met so many inspiring women and has been able to take time for additional educational opportunities. She’s busier than ever, but she’s doing things that she loves. Hopefully, Drusilla’s story will interest you. Please enjoy Bold Moves Podcast Episode 115 Drusilla Cowan!
